the Board of Examiners, in its reorganization and the interest of a higher 
standard of efficiency for our ministry, the following has been prepared : 

1. The work of the Board is divided into six groups: Admission on 
Trial; first, second, third and fourth years, and Local Orders. Each 
group to be in the hands of a committee — one of the committeemen to be 
chairman of the committee. 

2. A vice-chairman and secretary has been appointed to aid in carry- 
ing out the detail plans for the reorganization during the year. 

3. Mid-year examinations are required; time and place to be ar- 
ranged and announced. No examinations are allowable except at mid- 
year appointments and at the seat of the annual Conference. Candidates 
for admission and local orders are excused from mid-year work. 

4. The day preceding the opening of the Annual Conference is the 
appointed time for examinations. Examiners who absent themselves from 
this day's work, failing at the same time to ■ furnish the Chairman of the 
Board with written questions on his studies, are not to be recommended 
to the bishop for reappointment unless said examiners offer a legitimate 
excuse. And candidates who fail to attend examinations on appointed 
day, unless unavoidably detained, need not ask for examination. 

5. Examiners are required to correspond with the candidates who 
are to be examined by them, during the .early part of the year,' furnishing 
the candidates with from 50 to 100 questions or suggestions on each book.. 
The final examination questions to be drawn from the questions or sug- 
gestions given previously. 

6. The requirements of the Discipline are to make the examinations 
written if practicable, and two weeks ahead of the annual examination 
at Conference to send written questions to the Chairman of the Board. 

7. A meeting of the Examining Board is on the night previous to- 
the day of examination at Johnson City. 

8. The chairman of each group is to submit in writing the grades 
of the candidates in his department to the registrar.

PART III. 



REPORTS OF THE DISTRICTS. 



ATHENS DISTRICT. 
W. C. MielER, Presiding Elder. 

Several of the charges which had been supplied had to be re-supplied 
and J. S. Strange, a member of the Conference, had been transferred from 
the Erie to the Chatata Circuit. The Erie charge thus vacated had been 
supplied by J. W. Warren, a student. But notwithstanding these changes 
the work of the church had gone forward and hundreds of souls saved, 
gracious revivals occurring on all the charges with but a single exception. 

Two new churches had been completed and dedicated during the year, 
worth $2,500 each — Andrew's Chapel and Luminary; another, also worth 
$2,500, at McCays, is about ready for dedication. 

Improvements have been made on the following churches : Maryville, 

$700 ; Cleveland, $260 ; Lenoir City, $ . Lots have been procured at 

Etowah, Tellico Plains and Athens, on which to build churches. Parson- 
ages have been purchased for Maryville Circuit, Athens, and a lot for a 
parsonage at Lenoir City, and a district parsonage located in the heart of 
Athens, worth $2,500, about one-third of which had been secured. 

The pastors have all labored with zeal and fidelity and, without excep- 
tion, with great efficiency and success. 

The Athens department of the University of Chattanooga is in most 
excellent condition, and Dr. Race was never more popular. Ritter Indus- 
trial Home has been enlarged and improved and is doing excellent work 
in all its departments — industrial, mental, and religious. 

The Sunday Schools and Epworth Leagues are not ideal, but are 
rendering service of great importance. 

The greatest demand on the Athens district is increased salaries and 
more efficient preachers ; and better salaries paid means better service ren- 
dered. The demand is that the preacher cut himslf loose from all secular 
employments and devote himself wholly to the upbuilding of the Church 
of God. In some places the large circuits are in the way of success. 
There is not a pastor in the district who receives a salary adequate to bis 
needs, nor is the church doing what it should for the benevolences ; but 
while this is true, all the apportionments have been met in full this year. 
The Presiding Elder had been sick during the winter, but the pastors 
and others carried forward his work, and after his recovery they gave 
him a vacation and a fund of $50 to pay traveling expenses. The rest did 



46 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOLSTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

him good. During his term of six years on the district nine churches have 
been built, costing $19,000, and three parsonages worth $5,700. The con- 
tributions for ministerial support have advanced, as have also the collec- 
tions for the benevolences. Have been courteously treated by the pastors 
and laity and give thanks to God for any good accomplished. 

BRISTOL DISTRICT. 

E. Grant Hutchinson, Presiding Elder. 

The district is large, territorially, extending from Cumberland Gap on 
the West to Roanoke on the East, a distance of 275 miles, embracing irt 
some respects the richest and most beautiful portion of the "Old Domin- 
ion." It is traversed by many railroads, new towns are springing up,, 
and material development is very rapid. 

Death has visted three of the parsonages, taking the occupant of 
the cradle from the homes of Brothers Sage, Leslie and Wilson. The 
Presiding Elder's father has also gone to his reward. Family and per- 
sonal affliction has also interfered, in several instances, with the work of 
the church. 

A number of changes have been made in the appointments of the dis- 
as arranged at the last Conference. 

An opportunity to purchase a $1,200 church for $500 in Christiansburg 
will be improved, and at Salem, a suburb of Roanoke, the people are ask- 
ing us to establish a church with regular services. 

Bristol is also an inviting field where we have from fifty to one hun- 
dred members ; indeed there are many places open to us if we had the 
men to fill them. 

The year just closed has witnessed many gracious revivals, and the 
addition of hundreds to our membership ; new classes have been formed 
and churches erected in localities where a year ago we had nothing. 
Churches have been erected and dedicated as follows : Mount Vernon, 
Hilton Circuit; Ingle's Chapel, Rose Hill Circuit; the eight-thousand- 
dollar church in Roanoke ; Centenary Church, Marion Circuit ;Widener's 
Memorial, on the same charge; Maple Grove, Russell Circuit; Sugar Tree, 
Nickelsville Circuit; Hunter's Gap, Pennington Gap Circuit; a twelve 
hundred dollar church on J. J. Maness' charge ; New Hope, Nickelsville 
Circuit; Rye Cove, Dungannon Circuit, would have been dedicated but for 
the inclement weather ; Leonard's Memorial, Grayson Circuit. These 
churches range in value from $1,000 to $8,000. Two others will be ready 
for dedication soon — Dotson's Chapel, Honaker Circuit, and Franklin's 
Chapel, Pattonsville Circuit. On Hilton Circuit a building used for school 
purposes has been purchased and dedicated as a church. A lot at Long 
Hollow, Rose Hill Circuit, has been procured, and $400 subscribed toward 
a church building. The foundation has been laid and subscriptions secured 
for a church at Lotus. The six-room parsonage on Grayson charge is 
about half finished. Washington Circuit has just closed a deal for a 



METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 47 

seven-acre lot and parsonage. Other churches and parsonages have been 
improved and beautified. 

The pastors and' people have been faithful and the district has made 
healthy and permanent gains. On many charges all claims have been 
paid in full, and all have made gratifying progress. We shall strive to 
reach better things in the future. The Advocate-Journal Fund, reported 
in full. Sunday Schools and class meetings are in good condition and are 
found in nearly all our churches. District conference was converted into 
a School of Practical Theology, conducted by Dean W. S. Bovard. The 
scheme was a success. There is much that can not be reported. Good 
seed is sown. Our workers are optimistic. Our opportunities are tremen- 
dous. Our time and place providential. Let us prove ourselves equal to 
our task. 

CLINTON DISTRICT 
J. M. Emert, Presiding Elder. 

After the last session of the Conference the pastors all went to their 
charges and were welcomed by the people. The year has been one of 
toil and hardship and of success. Personal and family affliction have hin- 
dered some. T. D. Rowe and wife lost their precious little seven-year- 
old daughter in the early part of the year, and recently Brother Rowe 
has been at the bedside of a sick brother in New Mexico. J. S. Best and 
wife also lost a bright little girl from their home. Robt. Walker has lost 
about five months on account of personal affliction. He is now convales- 
cent. His people have been loyal and the church reports all claims paid 
in full. 

Churches have been erected at Twinville, Andersonville Circuit, worth 
$800; Meadow View, same charge, worth $1,500; Burrville. worth $700; 
other improvements on this charge, $"25 ; parsonage at Andersonville re- 
paired at a cost of $58; parsonage Big Valley Circuit, $50; Taylor's Chapel, 
Clinton charge, $110; Plarriman, repairs, $300; new church, Jacksboro Cir- 
cuit, $1,000; Jellico, $250; LaFollette, $3,100; Newcomb, $200; Oliver 
Springs, church has been dedicated, paying an indebtedness of $300. 

New churches have been erected, or are in process of construction, at 
Oakdale, at a cost of $1,500; at Rugby Road, $600; repairs on parsonage 
on Maynardville Circuit, $135; building and repairing on Scarboro Cir- 
cuit, $341; Liberty, Well Springs Circuit, has all lumber on the ground 
for a new church, and the parsonage has been remodeled and beautified. 

The benevolences were all in hand at the time of the district confer- 
ence, and the collections will show an increase over former years. 

Sunday Schools, Epworth Leagues, and Junior Leagues, our most im- 
portant branches of Christian work, are in good condition. 

The salaries estimated this year are $1,600 in advance of last year. 
The estimates are inadequate, but the pastors will receive more than 
formerly. 



48 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOtSTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

The circulation of the Advocate Journal has been increased and we 
hope to raise our $1,000 toward the endowment fund. 

Our one educational institution, the A. B. Wright Institute, is under 
the principalship of Rev. M. H. Monroe, who has had good success. The 
school has received financial help from the sale of the Powells Valley 
Seminary property. 

Revivals have blessed the church in the Clinton district this year, 
eighteen of the twenty charges holding from one to eight revival meet- 
ings. The results are 498 professions and 227 accessions to the church. 

Pastors have been Methodistic, faithful, heroic, and the laymen have 
nobly seconded their efforts for the advancement of the work. As to 
his own work, had held all (84) quarterly conferences in person, one dis- 
trict conference, and traveled about 5,000 miles in doing his work. Rec- 
ognizes his obligations to preachers and people, and is grateful to God for 
health and strength to do his work. 

CHATTANOOGA DISTRICT. 
J. S. Burnett, Presiding Elder. 

Presented his final report of the Chattanooga district. The pastors 
had all had good health, and none had suffered family affliction save R. B. 
Stansell and wife, who had lost an infant daughter; and Bernard Gibbs, 
who had gone to California because of the failing health of his wife. 

David M. Ausmus, with the consent of Bishop McDowell, had given 
up his charge and entered Drew. O. T. Usleman and O. R. Tarwater 
had taken the places of these brethren, respectively. W. R. Suman had 
supplied South Pittsburg, and A. Burgess and J. A. Tate had, for good 
reasons, been relieved of their charges. 

It was unwise to attempt an organization at Daysville. Various 
charges left to be supplied had been supplied with men who had done 
efficient work, caring for all the interests of the church. James Hart, 
supply on Litton Circuit, reported 120 conversions, and 103 additions to 
the church; one church dedicated; plans for another, and all claims fully 
met. 

Space forbids the mention of all pastors in detail, but suffice it to say 
all have worked faithfully and well. 

Pastors' salaries average in the district $756.13. Not including charges 
paying over $1,000, we still have an average of $541. Total paid on 
salaries, $18,925, an increase for the year of $1,358. Episcopal Fund, Con- 
ference claimants, raised in full, all collections, aggregating $40,000. No 
indebtedness exists except at Tracy City, which has a debt of $175. Sev- 
eral debts have been paid this year. 

The following churches have been dedicated : Daysville, worth $1,200 ; 
Parham's Chapel, worth $1,000; Jasper, $3,000; Mt. Olivet, Whitwell Cir- 
cuit, $1,000; East Chattanooga, most important church enterprise in the 
district, is about ready for dedication. Plans are under way for new 






METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 49 

churches at Brayton, Morgan Springs Circuit, and Highland Park, where 
a $30,000 church is contemplated. 

There have been about 700 conversions and about 600 accessions to 
the church. Good meetings have occurred at Jasper, Chattanooga, and 
other places. 

The worldliness manifest is deeply deplored, one result of which is 
the constantly decreasing number of applicants for the ministry. The 
only way to cure this is not by paying better salaries, but an awakening 
of conscience until we feel, "Woe is me if I preach not the gospel." 

The district meeting was held at Dayton, and though it embraced 
but one day, it was voted the best we have held. Bishop Wilson and 
other distinguished ministers attended and aided in the exercises. 

During the six years of my incumbency, the gain in membership has 
been about 1,000. This does not represent additions, for 6,700 have been 
converted and 3,500 have joined the church. At least 75. per cent of this 
loss is due to removals. 

Pastoral support is $10,000 more than six years ago, an increase of 

■ 100 per cent. During my term we have paid $140,000 for benevolences, 

and for all purposes $315,000. Six years ago the smallest salary was $60. 

now it is $270; the most gratifying thing about it is that no pastor has 

reported a deficit in his salary during the six years. 

The growth of our schools has been a pleasure. Chattanooga Uni- 
versity has a quarter of a million endowment, raised during the time 
mentioned. We have raised our share of the Advocate Journal endow- 
ment fund. 

I wish to mention the Missionary Committee, composed of nine lay- 
men, whose business it is to help needy charges. It raises an average of 
$1,500 a year for this purpose. 

My personal relations with ministers and laymen have been most 
pleasant. To my appeals the people have responded promptly and gen- 
erously, and have thus made success possible. I part with them feeling 
sad, for I am sure that among them are some of my best friends. The 
Chattanooga district has a great future. I pray the blessings of the most- 
High upon preachers and people. 

GREENEVILLE DISTRICT. 
Geo. S. Bales, Presiding Elder. 

Several of the pastors have had personal and family affliction during 
the year, viz : C. H. Taylor, A. B. McKenzie, A. M. Rose, W. S. Whitten- 
burg, M. N. Davenport and J. W. Boling. Death has not invaded our 
ranks and all these brethren will make good reports to this conference. 

The spiritual condition of the district is only fairly good, though we 
have had many revivals; as a result there have been 800 conversions, 200 
reclamations, 450 received in full connection, 250 on probation, and 275 
baptized. The pastors have been their own evangelists. 



50 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOLSTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

The financial condition of the district was never better. Financial 
support has more than doubled during the last ten years. The benevo- 
lences also show a decided increase. There will be a gain in missions 
alone of $200, and other causes are keeping pace. For benevolences and 
other benevolence, the district approximates $2,500. Much has been done 
outside the regular channels. 

Church property is in good condition. We have built and improved 
church property this year to the value of $11,000. Most of this has been 
expended at Johnson City, where we are building a beautiful modern 
church, to cost, when completed, including lot, $30,000. Here a parsonage 
has also been purchased for $2,500. A church on the Parrottsville Cir- 
cuit, and one at Stone Dam, Chucky Circuit, have been dedicated, and 
many others have been improved, as have also several parsonages. 

There are four schools in the district, all doing good work ; one of 
them, Bloomingdale, has a debt of $900 which must be provided for, or 
we will lose this old landmark. 

The district is well supplied with church literature. The subscriptions 
for the Advocate Journal fund amount to $600. 

The Epworth League work is not what it ought to be. It seems a 
problem to make the League a success in this territory. 

The Sunday School work is in good condition and has an increased 
attendance. 

As to personal service, will say, I have been busy through the year, 
took no vacation, have met every quarterly meeting appointment in per- 
son, have preached about three times a week, traveled 3,000 miles, assisted 
the pastors in their work where needed, held one district conference and 
one camp meeting, and tried to conserve every interest of the church. 
To God be all the glory! 

KNOXVILLE DISTRICT. 
Geo. T. Francisco, Presiding Elder. 

In the district much has been doing this year. This city has voted 
out the saloons ! You come to share the hospitality of a city that be- 
lieves the "Saloon must go." 

The following churches have been built and dedicated this year : As- 
bury, six miles east of the city, worth $3,200; Reedtown, Chestnut Hill 
Circuit, worth $1,250; Pleasant Hill, Thorn Grove Circuit, worth $1,300; 
Clapp's Chapel, Knoxville Circuit, worth $1,200. At Sevierville a church 
has been inaugurated to cost $5,000; in Knoxville Trinity is well under 
way and will cost $50,000 ; Second Church will soon be completed at a cost 
of $11,000 and the property, including lot, will be worth $20,000; East 
Main Avenue has been rebuilt at a cost of $4,500 and is worth $10,000. 
The Lonsdale Church has been repaired at a cost of $2,000. The First 
Church has been repaired and beautified at a cost of $4,100. Morristown 
Church has been repaired at a cost of $1,500; Newport Church has been 



METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 51 

repaired at a cost of $350. At Jefferson City a church has been purchased 
at a cost of $1,300, and at Inskip a good lot secured. Two parsonages have 
been built this year, one at Townsend and one at Whitesburg, the first 
at a cost of $600, and the latter at a cost of $1,200. 

We have raised this year for building and improving churches and 
parsonages $47,600; for ministerial support $18,250, an increase of $1,417; 
the benevolences in the aggregate are met; raised for all purposes $70,850. 
The New Market school property has been sold for $2,500 and we will 
realize about $4,000 from property and funds. 

Spiritually, the district is in good condition. In the revivals held 
1,135 conversions have occurred, and there has been a good increase in 
the membership. The Epworth League has kept pace. District organiza- 
tions of the Women's Missionary Societies are doing good work. The 
Advocate-Journal fund has not been neglected ; $1,500 has been raised for 
the endowment fund. I have held all my quarterly meetings in person, 
except two, one district conference, looked after every interest of the 
church, have found pastors and faithful laymen ready to co-operate. For 
what has been accomplished, we give God the praise. 

THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. FREEDMEN'S AID, AND 
SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

Pursuant to the order of the General Conference and the action of the 
Commission on the Consolidation of Benevolences, the work hitherto 
accomplished by the Board of Education, Freedmen's Aid and Southern 
Education Society and Sunday School Union and Tract Society is hence- 
forth to be carried on under the organization known as THE BOARD 
OF EDUCATION, FREEDMEN'S AID AND SUNDAY SCHOOLS, 
this action taking effect January 1, 1907. Therefore your ocmmittee covers 
a much broader field than ever before. We must not, however, allow the 
fact of consolidation to obscure the claim of each of the great causes 
, hitherto considered separately. The work hitherto done by the Board 
i of Education is largely in the interest of student aid, and is vitally re- 
! lated not only to the welfare of the students but also to the best welfare 
of the educational institutions of the church. During the year closing 
] with November 30, 1906, 1,926 students were assisted to prepare for a 
life of usefulness, more than $180,000 being distributed among the educa- 
tional institutions for loans to these students. As an institution. Chil- 
dren's Day has become well established and it is to be maintained without 
(interruption. The Discipline provides specifically that the proceeds of 
'•Children's Day collection shall be applied to student aid and shall be 
pent as promptly as possible to the Board of Education. This provision 
Iremains in force. At the meeting of the new Board — held in Cincinnati, 
February 26-28, 1907 — the members of the new Board, representing the 
old line of work carried on by the Board of Education, consented to waive 
ill claims for funds other than those received in the Children's Dav col- 



52 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOESTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

lections. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that the proceeds of 
Children's Day be devoted to this work. As by action of the new Board 
this part of the work is to be retained in New York for the present, it 
will save confusion if remittances be sent to the New York office. 

We are making improvement in our Conference. Last year only 27 
out of 104 charges reported collections for the Children's Day fund. This 
year there are 92 out of 127 so reporting. When this society returns 
$5.00 for every dollar we raise it seems as if every pastor might at least 
give the people an opportunity to help. Once more, we ask the Presiding 
Elders to make this a particular matter on their first round of quarterly 
conferences. Tell the people that "The Christian Student," always brim- 
full of the best, is sent to every family contributing one dollar or more. 

There can be no question but that one purpose of the General Con- 
ference in effecting this consolidation was to secure a hearing for the 
benevolences of the church before each congregation. The new Board in 
Cincinnati, therefore, urgently requests that one Sunday be taken for the 
presentation of the claims of the work carried on by the new organization. 
This collection is to be divided in the ratio of two dollars to one as 
between the work for Freedmen's Aid and for Sunday Schools. And it 
was voted that an appeal should be made by the corresponding secretaries 
for the sum of $500,000 to cover all these interests. We therefore urgently 
request that a public presentation of these interests, and collection be 
taken, one Sunday in each congregation. 

The observance of Lincoln Day has been growing with increasing 
beneficial results ; and Rally Day has become an interesting and profitable 
institution of the Sunday School, the proceeds of the day being devoted 
to the work of Sunday Schools. It is earnestly hoped that pastors every- 
where will see to it that these days are observed as institutions of the 
Sunday School. The church has now three great benevolent societies. 
The missionary cause is strongly entrenched in our Sunday Schools. It 
is only fair that the work being done in the interest of education among 
the young in our own land should come in for a full share of sympathy 
and support. Therefore, the importance of placing emphasis upon Lincoln 
Day and Rally Day. 

The Freedmen's Aid, with limited resources, has been caring for the 
education of thousands of the most needy and helpless in our land. Chris- 
tian, industrial education is the only solution of our great problems. This 
society pleads that the church may hold up its hands that it may under- 
take and carry on a work in some sense adequate to the great need. The 
need for increased funds to carry on our Sunday School work in the West 
and in the South is equally apparent. Methodism has always been poten- 
tial in the formative period of the different sections of our country; but. 
owing to lack of funds, we are unable to meet the appeals that are con- 
stantly coming. The Presbyterian Church has 152 field workers for the 
organization and propagation of Sunday Schools; the Baptists, 140; the 
Congregationalists, 40 ; while we have but four or five men who devote 



rUK'x'HODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 58 

themselves entirely to this work. Realizing the important relation the 
Sunday School bears to the church, and being aware of the inadequate 
provisions for teacher training and Sunday School organization in this 
Conference and section, we recommend the consideration of the appoint- 
ment of a special held worker whose duties shall be entirely in the in- 
terest of the Sunday Schools of our Conference. This is a time of 
transition, attended by some danger, not only for these societies but for 
the great interest which they seek to serve. It is of the utmost impor- 
tance that every pastor should co-operate during this experimental period 
that all these interests may be wisely conserved. The apportionment for 
the united Society is 4" per cent of the amount apportioned to the cause 
of Foreign Missions — Children's Day, public collection in the churches, 
the collections on Lincoln Day and Rally Day all being counted in the 
total amount. 

OUR SCHOOLS. 

This has been the best year we have ever known in the life of the 
various schools within the bounds of our own Conference. Everybody 
has been working happily and enthusiastically for the general cause and 
our teachers are opening the year's work with highest hopes. 

A. B. WRIGHT INSTITUTE— Rev. M. H. Monroe. Principal. 
The A. B. Wright Institute. Rev. M. H. Monroe, Principal, located at 
Burrville, Morgan County, Tennessee, has a broad field of usefulness. 
There is no school of like grade within a radius of fifty miles. Over half 
of the teachers of Morgan County public schools and many of Fentress 
and Scott Counties were educated at this institution. During the past 
year the board of trustees bought a boarding hall for young men. It is 
well located on a tract of fourteen acres of land with a good spring near. 
We have received from the sale of Powell's Valley Seminary $980 to be 
applied on the property of our school. We have enrolled 171 students, 
twenty-two of whom are teachers during a portion of the year. 

OAKLAND SEMINARY— George R. Rowan, President. 
This school is one of our loyal affiliated institutions giving a good 
account of itself from year to year. 

WESLEYAN ACADEMY— S. H. Thompson, B. S., B. Ped., Principal. 
Rev. F. M. Cones, D. D., Associate Principal. 
During the past year this institution has enjoyed an encouraging de- 
gree of success. Since the opening of the present academic year there 
have been many new students added to the various departments and others 
have signified their intention of becoming students in the near future. 
Judging from the present outlook, it is confidently believed that before 
the date of the Christmas holidays there will be an enrollment much 
greater than that of any previous period in the history of the school. 



54 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOLSTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

During the past year the school grounds have been beautified ; improve- 
ments on Fisher Hall have been made, and new school furniture has been 
added. There are now six teachers, including the principal, and in the 
work of all the departments competency is shown on the part of the in- 
structors. The erection of a much-needed dormitory for boys is con- 
templated and through the generosity of friends of the school it is thought 
this work will soon be begun. Rev. F. M. Cones, D. D., the Associate 
Principal, has, during the past scholastic year, secured for the school funds 
and guaranteed pledges for the same, more than double that of the year 
previous. The best facilities for instrumental music are afforded in the 
school, and a large class in the same has been formed. Mrs. Ernest is 
the accomplished teacher of music. Principal Thompson is giving his 
usual satisfaction and is deservedly popular with all classes concerned. 

PARROTTSVILLE SEMINARY— P. R. Driskile, Principal. 
This school is strategically located and deserves the hearty support 
of our people in its excellent work. 

MURPHY COLLEGE— Elmer F. Goddard, President. 
The friends of Murphy College have great cause for rejoicing. The 
past Conference year has witnessed the enrollment of 447 students. Forty 
per cent of the teachers of Sevier County have been Murphy College 
students, and these teachers are educating more than three thousand boys 
and girls. Nor is our work confined to this county alone, for we have 
one graduate who is Superintendent of Public Instruction in Jefferson 
Count}'. Our work is of a high order, and our students are admitted to 
the University of Chattanooga and other high-grade institutions without 
examination. Before the close of another year we hope to have a thirty- 
six room building for boys. Our people deserve great praise and credit 
for building up this school property worth at least $25,000. 

KINGSLEY SEMINARY. 
This school was founded in the year 1877, and for thirty years has 
been an institution of untold value to the educational interests of Sullivan 
County and many other counties ; reaching even to nine different states 
for its patronage. For these years it has been in charge of a member 
of the Holston Conference and has done much for the strengthening of 
our church in this territory. Wishing to work in harmony with the great 
educational interests of the State, the trustees of this worthy institution 
have thought it wise to accept a liberal proposition made to them, by the 
Board of Education for Sullivan County, and sell the property to this 
board for a public high school. The quarterly conference has granted 
the trustees the privilege of making said conveyance ; and we, your Com- 
mittee on Education, concur in this action of the quarterly conference. 
The property of Powell's Valley Seminary and of the New Market 
School have been sold and the funds received devoted to the work in 
A. B. Wright Institute.

THE UNIVERSITY OF CHATTANOOGA. 

John H. Rack, D. D., President. 

THE ATHENS SCHOOL— W. A. Wright, Dean. 

"We are entering upon the best year in our history." This is the 
optimistic word those closest in touch with this newly christened school 
are saying. The tide is turning this way. Professor W. A. Wright has 
an able body of assistants 'and the dormitories are full. Ritter Home has 
substantial improvements with enlarged capacity. Let every man who 
can do so find a student for Athens. 

At Chattanooga, The School of Medicine, J. R. Rathmell, M. D., 
Dean, is growing; improving its grade of work every year. 

The School of Law, Charles R. Evans, Dean, is larger and better 
than ever. 

The College of Liberal Arts, W. W. Hooper, D. D., Dean, is making 
splendid progress. Notwithstanding the fact that the thoroughness of 
the curriculum causes many young people to enter a '"college" where a 
degree is granted for from one to three years' less work than at the 
University of Chattanooga, the enrollment is thirty per cent higher now 
than at a corresponding date last year, and the college spirit was never 
so strong. Two additions have been made to the faculty. The material 
equipment has been increased. Substantial improvement has been made 
upon buildings. As indicated in the address of President Race at this 
session of the Conference, great things are planned for the future develop- 
ment of the school. We rejoice that we have a school in which we have 
a constantly increasing pride. We urge all our pastors and people to 
keep President Race fully informed as to names and addresses of every 
young person in our territory who ought to be in our University. 

Our School of Theology, W. S. Bovard, D. D.. Dean, stands for thor- 
oughgoing scholarship, for open mindedness to the truth, for insight 
into the real Word of God, for grounding in the essentials of Christian 
doctrine, for knowledge of men and affairs as well as of books, for com- 
plete manhood, for the deepening of devotion and a complete abandon to 
the work of the Kingdom : for all-round development, so that the minister 
may be thoroughly furnished, a workman that need not be ashamed. We 
urge our young men to disregard all obstacles and set their faces toward 
this school, knowing that they will be able to render so much larger 
service for having done so. 

We rejoice in the splendid beginning that has been made toward the 
securing of an adequate endowment for our University, the fund being 
at present $3,47,000. But we recognize the necessity of pushing this fund 
above the half million mark. Therefore, we give our unequivocal endorse- 
ment of and support to the plan of the trustees to secure within the next 
two years $400,000 additional. 

The total enrollment of 726 students and the total income of $56,593 
indicates a condition that is deeply gratifying. 

We recommend our great Theological Schools at Boston, Madison, 



56 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOLSTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

New Jersey, and Evanston, Illinois, to the consideration of young men 
preparing for the ministry. The large faculties of specialists, well 
equipped libraries and close touch with great cities where the supreme 
sociological problems are being faced, make them able to render the I 

student the largest service. Li/ther Freeman, Chairman.

follows : 

We rejoice in the prosperity of the new organization, and pledge our- 
selves to hearty co-operation. We are pleased to have had with us the 
Rev. Robert Forbes, the first assistant secretary, and have been greatly 
helped and enlightened by his address to the Conference, and his presenta- 
tion of the work of the new organization on Sabbath night. We pledge 
our co-operation in the general work and in the special call for California. 

We shall be thankful for the literature which the board freely dis- 
tributes simply for the asking. 

We shall always be thankful for any help Dr. Forbes can afford us, 
and we extend a warm welcome when he may return.

REPORT OF BOARD OF CONFERENCE STEWARDS. 

The most trying task confronted by our Conference from year to year 
is the attempt to make the small sum committed to the stewards serve 
the necessities of our claimants. For every dollar at our disposal we 
need five. We hail with delight the suggestion of our noble laymen for a 
forward movement in this direction. We urge the committee created to 
act as speedily and as courageously as possible. Make the task big enough 
to challenge our best.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TEMPERANCE. 

Your committee on Temperance respectfully beg leave to present the 
following report : 

We rejoice in the growing sentiment all over the nation and in other 
nationalities as well, in favor of temperance and prohibition, and espec- 
ially in this our Southland and more especially in our own state of Ten- 
nessee and sister state of Virginia, the territory embraced in this Con- 
ference. It is with gratitude that we make mention the city of Knox- 
ville and other cities of the state that have voted out the saloon. 

We therefore pledge ourselves as a body never to relax our efforts 
until the last dram-shop in our state of Tennessee and Virginia, like 
glorious Georgia, shall extirpate the iniquitous traffic from all our bord- 
ers, and to this end we will faithfully co-operate with the Anti-Saloon 
League, state and national prohibition movements, Woman's Christian

opportunity presents. And we will endeavor to use all proper means to- 
secure the election to civil offices, sober men, who are pledged to favor 
temperance and prohibition, and to defeat men who will not so pledge 
themselves ; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the United States senators and the members of the 
national house of representatives, two from the state of Tennessee and 
the state of Virginia, be and they are hereby requested to use their best 
efforts to secure such legislation by our National Congress as will protect. 
the people living in prohibition territory from invasion by the liquor in- 
terest from other sections. 

Resolved, That the secretary of the Conference be instructed to send' 
a copy of these resolutions to the senators and representatives in the 
National Congress from the state of Tennessee and the state of Virginia.

Wm. F. Pitts. 

DEACONESS WORK. 
We have been slow to appreciate the great possibilities of service 
for the kingdom in the deaconess movement. The churches that have ex- 
perimented with this work are convinced of its high value. The work of 
our Conference Deaconess, Miss Minnie Frickey, is everywhere com- 
mended. We are glad to announce that several young women from our 
Conference are in the training school at Washington. Whenever we can 
persuade young women of the best quality to enter this work we are serv- 
ing them and contributing to the coming kingdom.

THE EPWORTH LEAGUE. 

The Epworth League is, indeed, a child of Methodism. Its mission 
supplements that of the Methodist Church. The work of this organiza- 
tion is no longer to be regarded as an experiment. Through eighteen years 
of adaptation, growth, and achievement it has demonstrated its right to 
exist and hold as it does a conspicuous place among other Young People's 
Societies. 

Its plans and organizations have lost the novelty that belonged to its 
earliest history, still these are wholesomely maintained. 

As the years go by we are compelled to note that the organizing of 
the Epworth League was providential and opportune for our church. 
Many of our great church workers of today were the Senior and Junior 
Epworth Leaguers of yesterday. And we believe that the greater church- 
workers of the greater tomorrow will be the product of this splendid 
organization. 

The organization is constantly growing. Three thousand Senior 
chapters were chartered last year. Two thousand Juniors were enrolled. 
The work is deepening and widening. There is an increased spirit for world 
evangelism; an increase of more than fifty per cent in the enrollment 
in Bible study and a greater enrollment in personal work. 

We are glad to note that with the general progress being made that. 



METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 61 

the Holston Conference Epworth League is doing substantial service and 
we rejoice that our annual spring rallies do not betray a lack of interest, 
inspiration and encouragement in the noble work locally. 

We pledge ourselves to sustain our chapters and enlarge our work in 
this territory until we possess this Conference section as Epworth Leaguers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

B. M. Martin. 

AGGRESSIVE EVANGELISM. 

Evangelism is our business. To adjust ourselves to changed condi- 
tions by a variety of methods should be our constant endeavor. The time 
of special effort in what we denominate a "revival meeting" which has 
served so many souls, through so many years, must not be neglected, but 
the pastor who waits for the special season before expecting results is 
behind the age. Every day evangelism is the ideal. We commend the 
Win-One Circle plan of the General Conference Commisson ■ on Ag- 
gressive Evangelism and urge all pastors to secure the publications of this 
commission. 

Last fall a two days convention, attended by representatives of our 
own and neighboring conferences, was held at Chattanooga. Dr. T. S. 
Henderson, of New York, was the chief speaker. The conference was 
educational and inspirational. We hope to arrange for similar meetings 
in the various districts during the coming year. 

Luther Freeman, Chairman. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHURCH LITERATURE. 

The splendid literature of our Methodism ought to be a source of 
pride to every member of the church. Our books, periodicals, newspapers 
and other publications are not excelled by any others. That our people 
may attain the highest in knowledge and intelligence possible to us it is 
indispensable that our literature should have the widest circulation among 
us. Every member of the Methodist Episcopal Church is an owner and 
a direct beneficiary of the Methodist Book Concern. Every dollar spent 
for the books and papers published by our own church, directly benefits 
the Holston Conference. We, as preachers, fear that we do not make 
so clear to our people as we might the privilege and duty of availing them- 
selves of the inestimable benefits to be derived from the purchase and 
reading of our Church publications. We feel that in doing more in this 
respect we shall be benefiting each individual reached, as well as promoting 
the general good of the church as a whole. 

The Methodist Advocate-Journal is the official newspaper of this and 
other Southern Conferences. We note with gratification the progress of 
the paper under the editorship of Dr. J. J. Manker. The great improve- 
ment in the affairs of the Holston Conference has been brought about 
largely through the loyalty and aggressiveness of the Methodist Advocate- 
Journal. 

We rejoice in the progress of the movement to provide a $10,000 fund 



62 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOESTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

for the better equipment of the Methodist Advocate-Journal. This move- 
ment ought to be pushed to an immediate consummation. It is also im- 
mensely important to the circulation of the paper. 

E. Omohundro, Chairman. 

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY. 
We wish to call attention to the American Bible Society. This so- 
ciety continues to be the great ally of the churches, especially in the for- 
eign fields. It would be practically impossible to carry on the work in 
foreign lands, without the aid of this society in distributing Bibles and 
in translating. We ask our people to continue their support of this worthy- 
cause. Robt. B. Stan sell, Chairman. 

REPORT OF AUDITING COMMITTEE. 
We, the Auditing Committee, have examined the presiding elders'" 
accounts and find all of them correct except the McCays charge, Athens 
District, on which we find a deficit of $5.00, also $20,00 returned from 
Luminary charge. G. W. Paul, Chairman.

COMMITTEE TO VISIT MRS. BROWNLOW. 
The members of the Holston Conference now in sixty-third session in 
the historic city of Knoxville desire to record its grateful appreciation of 
the heroic work of Parson Brownlow in the crucial days now long past. 
Mrs. Brownlow is still living in the old homestead in good health and 
full possession of all her faculties. We congratulate her on the attain- 
ment of the ripe age of 80 years. We suggest that a committee of five,. 
of which Bishop Wilson shall be the chairman, and Dr. Olmstead a mem- 
ber, shall be raised to call on Mrs. Brownlow and assure her of the af- 
fectionate honor in which she is held by this body of Christian ministers.

OBITUARIES. 

REV. JAMES D. LAWSON was born January 12, 1826, and departed 
this life November 15, 1906. He professed faith in Christ October 6. 
1846, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church and was appointed class 
leader. He was ordained deacon Oct., 1858, by Bishop Andrew. He 
was ordained elder Oct., 1869, by Bishop Simpson. He rode horse- 
back over 40,000 miles and witnessed hundreds of conversions. He was 
a great evangelist and an honored member of the Holston Conference. 
He was very popular. When he left an appointment for preaching the 
church was sure to be full. By energy, push and economy he accumu- 
lated considerable property. 

He is survived by a widow, five daughters and four sons — Mrs. 



METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 68 

Martha Fox and Mrs. Mary Butler, both of Middle Creek, Term., Mrs. 
Geo. King, of Grand View, Texas ; Mrs. J. M. Roberts, of Wear's Valley, 
and Mrs. J. C. Gobble, of Pigeon Forge; Prof. W. C. Lawson, of Pu- 
laski, Tenn., superintendent of the city schools ; John W. Lawson, of 
Wear's Valley, a successful farmer and school teacher; J. B. Lawson, 
who is now in Mexico, and D. B. Lawson, of Pigeon Forge, a success- 
ful merchant. 

To the honored widow and children we extend our sincere sympathy 
and bid them follow in his footsteps and after awhile meet him in that 
home of which he so often sang. W. M. Bull. 



REV. WILLIAM KINSLAND was born in Haywood County, North 
Carolina, September 26, 1836. He was married to Penelope West, Sep- 
tember 9, 1862, and died at his home in Grainger County, Tennessee, 
August 9, 1907, being almost 71 years of age. He began preaching in 1857. 
being then connected with the Holston Conference of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, South. He was admitted into the Holston Conference of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church in October, 1867, and spent many years of 
faithful, earnest service in the itinerant ministry in the Holston Conference. 
Mr. Kinsland was a man of strong mind and noble and incorruptible char- 
acter. His social qualities were so warm and genial that he was a favorite 
with both the old any 3'oung. His religious character was without a 
stain, his high standing among his neighbors being evidenced by the large 
attendance and the profound feeling at the funeral service which occurred 
at Joppa on Sunday, August 11. The services were conducted by the 
Rev. H. B. Ogle and the Rev. J. J. Manker. The interment was at the 
Joppa cemetery. The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful, con- 
tributed by neighbors and friends in the vicinity, others being sent by 
the Ladies' Aid Society, the Home Missionary Society, and the Sunday 
school of Trinity Methodist Church, Knoxville, as well as by personal 
friends in the city. 

Mr. Kinsland leaves four children, J. E. Kinsland, a practicing attor- 
ney residing at Rutledge, Tenn., Mrs. H. W. Acufr, Tampico, Tenn., Mrs. 
Ida May Stanfield, Knoxville, Tenn., and Miss Carrie Elizabeth Kinsland, 
the youngest and the onh/ one remaining at the old homestead. These 
are all members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Sorely bereaved 
in the death of their noble father, they nevertheless comfort themselves 
with the reflection that in his last illness they were permitted to minister 
to him, and that his last days were spent in his old home and that his 
death was peaceful. Of his blissful immortality they entertain no 
doubt, and of meeting him and their sainted mother in heaven they have 
a blessed hope. J- J- Manker. 

ROBERT OWEN AYRES was born in' Buckingham County. Vir- 
ginia, September 13, 1831. He began his ministry in Ohio and came to 
Tennessee when the Holston Conference was reorganized by Bishop D. W. 



64 YEAR BOOK OF THE HOESTON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Clark in 1865. His first appointment was to the Jonesboro Circuit, which 
embraced several preaching places in Washington County, Tennessee, 
one of which was located within what is now the corporate limits of 
Johnson City. 

In May, 1866, he was admitted to full connection with the Conference 
and recognized as a deacon, having been ordained in Ohio before coming 
to Tennessee. At the session of Conference held in Chattanooga in 
1868, he was elected to elder's orders and ordained by Bishop D. W. Clark, 
October 11th of that year. During his effective relation to the Conference 
he served the following charges : Jonesboro Circuit, Clinton, Jacksboro, 
Little River, Thorn Grove, Fincastle, Campbell Station Circuit, Chatata, 
Blue Spring, Athens Circuit, in the order named. At his own request 
he was granted a supernumerary relation without appointment in 1882, and 
continued in this relation until 1885, when his relation was changed to 
effective, and he was assigned to Campbell Station circuit the second time 
and served one year. He was subsequently appointed to the Thorn 
Grove, Loveville, and Little River charges, serving one year on each, 
his last appointment being to Little River Circuit in 1888. During 1889 
and 1890 his relation was that of supernumerary. At the session of 
Conference held in 1891, it being apparent to his brethren that his years 
of effective service were past, his name was ordered put on the Honor 
Roll and he was assigned his Avell-earned place among the superannuated 
members of the Conference, where he continued until last Monday even- 
ing, October 7th, when his earthly pilgrimage ended and his emancipated 
spirit was permitted to see "the King in his beauty," and doubtless hear 
from His lips "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the rest 
and reward of Heaven!" 

Brother Ayers was married to Miss Eliza Smith of Ohio in 1868, who 
shared his joys and sorrows, toils and triumphs for thirty-six years and 
was in the truest sense a helpmeet, and gave aid and comfort to him in 
his work of faith and labor of love. This happy union was terminated 
here below by her departure to Heaven, October 29, 1904. Though the 
husband was cheered, comforted and sustained by the presence and grace 
of the blessed Savior, whom he loved and had served for fifty years, his 
heart earnestly yearned for 

"A land upon whose blissful shore 
There rests no shadow, falls no stain ; 
There those who meet shall part no more, 
And those long parted meet again." 

Three sons were born to brother and sister Ayres, all of whom sur- 
vive their parents — one of them — Robert Ernest Ayres is an esteemed 
member of this Conference. May the children cherish the rich legacy 
bequeathed to them in the devoted Christian lives of their sainted parents, 
strive to emulate their virtues and walk worth}' of their high calling in 
Christ Jesus ! J. S. PETTY.
